An Understated Dominance Chapter 1743 by Marina Vittori

It was unclear how long it had been when Dustin slowly regained consciousness. His upper body was wrapped in thick bandages. His limbs were feeble and weak, and his breath was visibly frail.

“Didn’t I die?”

Dustin glanced at his palm, then around the room. The place seemed somewhat familiar. It was as though he had been there before.

“You’re awake?”

Grace entered the room carrying a bowl of soup.

“You were severely injured. Fortunately, you’re resilient. It wasn’t easy to save you.”

“Did you save me?”

Dustin was astonished.

“Who else?” Grace said lightly.

“The pendant I gave you protected your vital organs. It infused powerful vitality into your body when it mattered most. It was a close call, but it pulled you back from the brink of death.”

“I didn’t expect that that pendant could bring me back from the brink. Do you have any more of those treasures? Maybe give me a couple?” Dustin shamelessly asked.

“Haha! Do you think I have them lying around?” Grace replied irritatedly.

“Creating a pendant takes ten years off my life. If it gets destroyed, I feel the pain too. I’ve only given the pendants to two people in my life. That’s Father and you.”

“Ten years of life? That’s incredibly valuable,” Dustin exclaimed in surprise.

Such treasures made using life force were extraordinary. But they were equally risky as they disappeared after a single use.

“Do you think I’m joking with you?” Grace replied calmly.

“If your life weren’t at stake, I wouldn’t have given you that pendant.”

“Your Royal Highness, I am deeply grateful,” Dustin expressed his gratitude.

“Is that all for saving your life?”

Grace teased.

“If Your Royal Highness faces any trouble, I’ll give my all to assist you,” Dustin vowed earnestly.

“That’s more like it.”

Grace chuckled.

“By the way, how long have I been unconscious?” Dustin suddenly asked.

“Three days,” Grace replied.

“What? That long?”

Dustin frowned.

“Don’t worry, your friends are all safe and sound. I’ve reached out to them and have arranged safe houses. They should be fine for now,” Grace reassured him.

“That’s a relief.”

Dustin sighed. He feared that Cinna might have led the Dragon Guard to wipe out everyone while he was unconscious.

“Dustin, considering your strength, very few in Oakvale could match you. I examined your body. You were poisoned and stabbed in the chest. What happened?” Grace asked cautiously.

Dustin was an ultimate grandmaster. After Alaric’s death and the destruction of most of the Dragon Guard aces, there weren’t many in Oakvale who could fatally wound him.

“Let’s not dwell on it. There was a traitor by my side who took advantage of my vulnerability and stabbed me.”

Dustin’s expression turned cold. It would have been understandable if he faced a powerful enemy and sustained severe injuries due to a lack of skill.

However, being betrayed by someone he trusted turned the situation into more than just a simple injury.

Summary An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori

Dahlia Nicholson and Dustin Rhys had been married for three years. After Dahlia’s meteoric rise to success, she abandons the useless dead weight that’s Dustin, proposing divorce. Unbeknownst to her, everything she had ever achieved was only because of him.

Chapter 1 “Dustin, here is the divorce agreement prepared by Ms. Nicholson. All you need to do is sign them.” In the president’s office of the Quine Group, the secretary, Lyra Blaine, placed a piece of A4 paper on the table. A man sat opposite her, dressed in plain clothing. “Divorce? What do you mean?” Dustin Rhys was taken aback. “Do you not understand what I’m saying? Your marriage with Ms. Nicholson is over. You’re not even on the same level anymore. Your existence is nothing but a smear on the president’s reputation!” Lyra pulled no punches as she spoke. “A smear on her reputation?” Dustin frowned. “Is that how she thinks of me?” Back when they first got married, the Nicholson family was in ruinous debt. He was the one who helped them when they were at their lowest point. Now that they were rich, Dahlia Nicholson was ready to just kick him out. “Something like that.” Lyra jerked her chin toward the magazine on the table. A photo of a beautiful woman was printed on the front page. “Look at the headline on this magazine, Dustin. Ms. Nicholson’s net worth has hit one billion in the course of just three years, a feat no short of a miracle. She’s now the most desired woman in Swinton! With all this, she’s destined for greatness. But you, you’re just a regular joe. You don’t deserve her at all. I hope that you’ll see some sense and do the right thing.” When Dustin remained silent, Lyra frowned. “I know you’re not happy with this, but this is reality,” she continued. “You might have helped Ms. Nicholson when she was in trouble, but she has repaid you for everything you’ve done for her over the last three years. In fact, you’re the one who owes her now!” “Is our marriage just a business deal to her, then?” Dustin took a deep breath to suppress the emotions within. “If she wants to divorce me, let her speak to me herself.” “Ms. Nicholson is very busy. She doesn’t need to trouble herself with such trifling matters.” “Trifling matters?” Dustin was stunned. Then he laughed bitterly. “Is that so? Is divorce a trifling matter to her? She can’t even find the time to speak to me. Truly, she’s that unattainable now!” “Dustin, don’t delay this any longer.” Lyra pushed the divorce agreement toward him again. “Just sign here and you’ll get a car and a house as compensation. On top of that, you’ll also get eight million dollars. This is more than what you’ll be able to earn in your lifetime!” “Eight million dollars is a lot, but…I don’t need it. I will sign the divorce papers if she comes personally. Otherwise, I won’t sign anything,” Duston said coldly. “Don’t go too far, Dustin!” Lyra slammed her hand on the table. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you. With all her power and resources, Ms. Nicholson can divorce you easily. It’s only because she appreciates her past relationship with you that she’s allowing you to keep your dignity intact. Don’t provoke her!” “My dignity?” Dustin was a little amused by that. She didn’t even want to speak to him directly to divorce him. What kind of dignity was that? Moreover, if she really did appreciate their relationship, then why was she threatening him now?
